This paper describes an algorithm for designing objectives with separated components for telescopic and collimation systems. Combinations of various types of optical glasses are presented for objective–apochromats obtained using this algorithm. It is confirmed that inexpensive, easy-to-manufacture glasses can be used to obtain apochromatic correction of the image.
